Uninstalling Symantec Antivirus without the password!

If SAV asks for a password when you try to uninstall it and the default password “symantec” does not work try this:
1. Start > Run > Regedit
2. Goto HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\INTEL\LANDesk\VirusProtect6\CurrentVersion\Administrator Only\Security\
3. Change the value for “useVPuninstallpassword” from 1 to 0
4. Close the registry and retry the uninstall!
